VERONICA TAKES A HAND

might be a clue ! But why had it happened? Had the boys been foolish enough to spread her suspicions concerning poor Carl before he had been killed. She was sorry now that she had expressed that idea. It was a very dangerous one. Yet it seemed very possible to her at the time. She wished she could find someone to turn to for advice. As she thought of this, she remembered their hospitable friend, Mr. Bernaldi. She had never been to his house, but she had met him that night at the ball at Carlton House Terrace. He would help her, surely !
She recalled his very pressing invitation to her to call. She knew how interested he was in her brother and his friend-and also Prince Carl. If anyone knew anything about their movements it would be he. So she made up her mind there and then to call and see him as soon as possible.
Hurrying back towards the window she suddenly stopped dead in her tracks. The hearthstone by the fireplace was just a tiny bit out of place ; but it looked `fresh'. That was the only way she could describe it afterwards. It looked as though someone had been fiddling about with it.
It is strange how, after it had remained secure for three hundred years, that stone was to swivel on its rusty pivot and betray itself on two such dramatic occasions. The fact was that the old staple which had kept it firm all this time, had rusted and snapped off with the constant use it had had recently, and the weight of the stone prevented if from shutting evenly.
And now Veronica made her first mistake. Had she not been so impulsive she would have saved her father and the Queen many heart burnings-to say nothing of poor Yolanda ! But what was `one person's loss was another's gain' as we shall see.

VERONICA TAKES A HAND

Without another thought she pushed the stone, and found the steps below. In another moment she was feeling her way down their crumbling treads. As she stood at the foot, her heart palpitating for all it was worth, she was faced with a problem. Should she go on, or should she turn back for help? She had no light to guide her ; but she concluded that the tunnel could not be very long and she might take a chance without one. She felt the same urge as she had before Ajax needed her!-the call of a kindred soul that had already mated itself to hers ; a hand that beckoned to her.
This time she did not hesitate, but set her face towards the blackened gap before her!
